There's no single factory behind it. If there was, then that manufacturer would be making ever effort to find more distributors in order to move more units than the few hundred than Nils ships each year. I can't know for sure, but pretty sure he sources the handle and dies separately and does the final construction himself. He's also made reference in the past that he is forced to dump many parts that don't meet his exacting standards. That's why Nils includes the testing crimps, to reassure the consumer that he himself is solely responsible for the end product.
